"Paying for Performance in Healthcare: The Answer to Poor Healthcare Quality or Blind Alley?"

Professor Martin Roland directs the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research (CCHSR), a joint research centre between the University of Cambridge and RAND Europe.

Dr. Roland trained in clinical medicine at the University of Oxford, where he obtained his doctorate. Following residency training for family medicine, he worked in London and in Cambridge before moving to the Chair in General Practice in the University of Manchester in 1992. In 1994, he established and subsequently became Director of the National Primary Care Research and Development Centre. In 2009, he moved to the Chair of Health Services Research at the University of Cambridge and created CCHSR as a joint research centre between Cambridge University and RAND Europe (the RAND Corporation’s European office which is also based in Cambridge).

Dr. Roland’s main areas of research interest are developing methods of measuring quality of care, and evaluating interventions to improve care including pay for performance and most recently the measurement of patient experience. His previous areas of research include back pain, specialist referrals, out of hours care, and nurse practitioners in primary care.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
